Friday Night Recap

Windsor Lancers got off to a great start off their press and had tremendous performances from a pair of second year guards in Josh Collins and Enrico DiLoreto, who form the basis of their backcourt for the coming seasons.  With 6'3" Isaac Kuon injured (high ankle sprain or hairline fracture of the ankle), the Lancers showed their depth in defeating a solid Varsity Blues team handily.  Bob Duff reports in the Windsor Star...  Coach Amos Connelly provides some insights into how prized 6'8" Scott Brittain is being handled relative to his history of concussions in Larry Moko's Hamilton Spectator articleThe Marauders lost a big lead to lose at home, committing 25 turnovers and giving up the lead in the final minute... Guelph Gryphons came from behind led by 6'4" Jonathan Moscatelli and 6'2" Dan McCarthy, surviving a rare off-night offensively from 5'11" Kareem Malcolm to defeat Queen's in Guelph... Canada West Highlights  6'4" Daniel Ferguson's 38 points against Brandon validate what many have said about how good of a jump shooter this transfer from Berry College is... Vic really appeared to miss 6'1" Matt Cullen from their lineup in the loss to Fraser Valley.  During the Vikes trip here in Ottawa, it was apparent that Cullen is the underlying key decision-maker for Vic offensively.  Even though Cullen is probably not their best scorer, his presence on the floor is the key to the Vikes... Manitoba keeps getting it done however last night's close shave against Thompson Rivers magnifies that the Bisons don't have the depth or overall talent to mail it in and instead need to be very sharp each night with a low margin for error.  And they have to make shots... Ryerson stayed in the game at Western until midway through the second half, showing a zone defense for big parts of the game as coach Roy Rana does his best to organize his troops in the face of injury issues.
